The same problem seems to arise if God and His purposes are offered as the ultimate explanation of the value and meaning of our lives. The idea that our lives fulfil God's purpose is supposed to give them their point, in a way that doesn't require or admit of any further point. One isn't supposed to ask "What is the point of God?" any more than one is supposed to ask, "What is the explanation of God?"
[What does it all mean? - Thomas Nagel, Chapter X]
I've got two questions to ask.
- Is "the point of God" God's aim?
- What is the difference between "explanation of God" and "explanation for God". In the context above, does "explanation of God" mean "description of God"?
